What is Trompe L'oeil?
A Trompe L'oeil is a style of painting in which objects are depicted with photographically realistic detail. It was commonly used by Renaissance artists to trick their viewers into believing that the objects painted were real. In college I was fortunate enough to have taken a Trompe L'oeil class and learn all about this style. Pictured above is my finished painting that took a whole semester to complete. This was something I thought I could never do and honestly I surprised myself! I would love to teach a class about this style of painting and give my students free choice on the objects they choose to paint.
